Finished but still sitting at 1 minute and door will not open,

OK pull it out and remove the back panel ... then locate the drain pump and drain hose ... clean it completely... it seems something is stuck causing this issue, after the water is drained out you will be able to open the door

Did all that gave it a spin but still door is not opening.

have you also cleaned the hose from pump to the drum ? if everything has been cleaned then it is the door lock that is bad and will replacement... usually the problem is solved after cleaning the pump
